Encyclopedia Dramatica's Zaiger's Lawyers Quitting
by Susan Basko, esq.
This particular motion asks for a 30 day extension of time to give Brian Zaiger a chance to find a new lawyer or to get up to speed to represent himself pro se. The motion states that there are 8 pending motions. Whether a judge will allow these lawyers to drop out when their client is facing 8 upcoming motions remains to be seen. First, they'll file a withdrawal motion and give their reasons.
Jonathan Monsarrat's Copyright claim was dismissed as being time-barred. That leaves Zaiger's Counterclaims.
Meanwhile, Encyclopedia Dramatica ownership has reportedly been taken over by Sibin Grašić of Serbia, @etfovac on Twitter.
The Encyclopedia Dramatic website has been down for about a week. A tweet issued by the site 's account on May 5, 2018, states:
"Our Frontend host has booted us because of the "Offended" page, I'm working to setup couple of alternatives. Would have notified y'all sooner, but - Twitter Jail."
Whether that is the actual reason for the site being down remains to be seen. Stay tuned and bring big buckets of popcorn.
